Your workflow is clearly different from mine. If my role is testing and
tagging, then I will not be making changes and committing them; I'll be
checking out a specified revision (probably from a stable branch with a
low commit rate), testing it, and tagging it if it's good; perhaps I'll
also update a version number and commit that. If my role is developing
the trunk, I won't be tagging. If my role is updating a stable branch,
I'll be aware when tagging is imminent, and try not to break it.

If, in my testing role, I find that I am forced to use mixed revisions,
I'll make that clear in the log message when the tag is committed, but
I'd expect that to be rare (apart from updating a version number).
